Rented about a week ago. Booked Luxury because it was essentially the same price as the mid/full size. I am EE with national. The EA and EE aisle was pretty average with a few dodge chargers and higher trim Mazda SUVs in the mix. The luxury had an Audi A6, Volvo S60, and a Cadillac CT4, and an Audi A4 (which I took).

A lot of Full Size SUV's in ES last night, even a couple in EA. Multiple Expeditions, an Armada, couple of Tahoes. On the other hand, very little in the way of sedans.

Noticed a BMW 330e in the overflow lot and asked the booth agent if I could take it. She happily drove it over to me. Awesome service as usual

Grabbed a 2024 BMW X5 50e with 10k miles today (3/4) had a 2024 BMW X5 40i last month. Both have similar options (Heads-up display, Harman-Kardon sound system, LED headlights, climate package). The 50e has adaptive air suspension which may be standard on this model.
Nice to see BMWs with a few extra options but still no adaptive cruise control sadly.

Other notable cars I saw were Merc GLB, Audi Q5, and a new well-optioned Mustang and a lot of Jeeps.

Picked up a new 2024 Accord from Executive last night. Glad to see some other options in the sedan category besides the Malibu and Altima!

Got an Audi A5 Sportback on the 29th. There were several Volvo SUVs, a 3 series, a 2 series, and many small SUVs on the lot. Unfortunately this A5 is in pretty bad shape for only 10k miles. Its got a weird creaking noise from the front end when reversing and its got 3 out of 4 tires replaced with no name brands and drives kind of funny. It also smells like someone bombed it with cigarettes and the sprayed some chemical to cover it. Kind of disappointed in this one. Was looking forward to a nice car.

A week or so ago I had a Mazda CX50. 6k miles. It was totally spotless and in amazing condition. Had 4 original matching tires! Go figure.

They seem to be getting more stingy at this location lately. Have a lot of cars pulled off to the side (between the canopy and the main road) and said they are reserved for "VIPs". Saw a new BMW 7 series and a couple Audi's over there. They seem to be moving to just putting a lot of large Jeep/Fords in the executive section instead of actual luxury cars.

This is a late report - picked up 4/30 approx 4:30p. Lot was full, mostly all uninspiring picks. Of note there was a RAM Laramie, Accord, several Minivans, Terrain and all the usual boring sedans/crossovers. Reserve had a Volvo XC90 for $50/day. I asked the booth attendant about other upgrades and she said I could pick any of those vehicles off to the side between the road and canopy for an upgrade. In that area they had 2 Wagoneers (Series 2), a GLE350, one Audi Q70, two Genesis GV80 (one they pulled to reserve eventually for $75/day extra). I asked how much extra per day they were and she said it varies and they will tell me at the booth. I was in no rush, so told her I was going to wait around and see what they pulled up. It was fairly busy and they were pulling up cars slowly (more of the same regular stuff). I waited around probably almost 40+ mins.

They pulled up a Wagoneer and the guy got out and asked me if I wanted it and I said sure. I walked around it twice and the booth lady came out real fast and was like oh so you are going to pay the upgrade fee? I said no, the guy just pulled this up and asked if I wanted it. She said no large SUVs you have to pay extra. I asked why did he just offer it to me then and she said maybe he overheard our conservation earlier...yeah right. Said fine just take it away then (had a bunch of scratches on one side anyway). Usually they are super friendly here but she was honestly the rudest with her tone / demeanor.

Waiting approx another 10mins and they parked a Palisade Calligraphy Night edition in executive. Gave it a quick once over jumped in left asap! Very nice vehicle, slightly underwhelming powertrain, kinda crappy gas mileage (got 23 on hwy over 200 mile roadtrip on ECO).

Picked up Monday night. Lot was maybe 1/4 full. Lots of Wagoneers, Expeditions and Pacificas. One 2025 Toyota Camry that the guy in front of me grabbed. I wanted something smaller so I wandered around to see if something was hiding between these massive SUV's when they pulled up an Audi Q3 which I took. Only 1100 miles.
